Kays Branch News

  • Kay’s Branch News: It’s a busy time before holidays come around

    The sun is shining this morning. After last week, that is news. I had to build a fire on Friday last. I don’t think I have ever had to start building fires this early. If that’s all I have to complain about I count myself very lucky.

  • Kay’s Branch News: Still plenty of play days left this season

    Good morning, though it’s wet and cloudy on the Branch this morning. I will be stuck at home. John brought the news on Friday that the road crew had moved its equipment in and would start paving our road Monday morning. The trucks have already gone up the road; though it’s hardly light out.
    I had a great week last week, busy every day, so I can afford to stay home one day to have our road blacktopped.

  • Kay’s Branch News: “And a wonderful time was had by all”

    I think there were many prayers lifted to Heaven Friday night, concerning weather. Saturday dawned cold but cleared and it was a beautiful fall day for the Monterey Homecoming Fair.
    I went down early to help set up the cemetery committee’s booth. Teresa Davis had already gotten the booth pretty much finished except for a couple of chairs and the easel to put the pictures on and the photos themselves. I had mounted them on cardboard so people could see them better.

  • Kay’s Branch News: Surprise party is a tough secret to keep

    It is now 32 degrees on my thermometer this morning. We had frost Sunday morning too. It looks like I can quit popping the allergy pills very soon. I did get the live plants into the garage Saturday evening. I’ve learned when they start predicting low temps for surrounding counties, it’s going to frost on the Branch. Our flowers are long gone before anybody else’s. That’s why I switched to artificial flowers to decorate for fall. They are bright and decorative long after the cold of November sets in.

  • Kay's Branch News: Branch is getting ready to party

    We on the Branch have been enjoying beautiful, picture perfect weather this week.
    Fay and Bruce have been busy going up and down the road cutting hay for Wanda and myself, making the fields look as good as the cut grass on our lawns.

  • Kay’s Branch News: Get to know the Kay’s Branch cast of characters

    We had bridge on Tuesday at the Smith House. I was the designated hostess this week. As I was going in with my very large beach bag of stuff for the bridge game, I saw Jackie Allnutt just in front of me. I hadn’t seen her since the Owenton High School reunion. We stood blocking the door and talked till she found her friends and went to sit down.

  • Kay’s Branch News: Going to theater makes for a good girls’ night out

    We finally got some soaking rain. There was something over an inch of rain in the gauge Monday morning and it is still sprinkling lightly.
    I know it rained on someone’s parade being a holiday weekend, but it was well received here on the Branch.

  • Kay’s Branch News: Some good crops still grow despite drought

    The weekend was great for outdoor sports, projects and just sitting and admiring it. The barn martins have flown. My two humming birds are still here, but evidently they didn’t reproduce because there has been no new birds at the feeder.
    I saw a field of tobacco that had been cut as I was going to Owenton last week.
    Fay brought me corn and tomatoes at midweek. I processed it and froze it for John’s birthday supper. When I was talking to her this morning she said all their corn was gone but she still had green beans and tomatoes.

  • Kay’s Branch News: Yard sale over for another year

    The big 127 Yard Sale is over. Wanda said they had a big sale at her house.
    Vanessa’s husband Willis’ mother passed away recently and they have been cleaning out her house, so they had a lot of stuff to sell. She and Barbara helped them set up and sell things as well as the stuff they brought.
    She said they survived heat, rain and wind but made it through the weekend.
    Charles Gregory and his friend Billy Kemper cooked and sold food as they have done for several years now.

  • Kay’s Branch News: Rain falls but brings problems

    I didn’t get to the mowing on Monday last. I kept holding out for more rain.
    I finally started early on Thursday and mowed till it got hot then finished on Friday. We did get a half inch on Thursday and a full inch on Friday evening. Everything is green and growing now. I’ll have to start my mowing routine again.
    We have had enough rain around this area to put water back in Elkhorn Creek.
